It probably has two fan motors. One that keeps the compressor cool and one in the freezer compartment that blows cold air out into the freezer and into the frig. You should be able to hear the motor running and feel the air coming out the vents when you open the door of the freezer. The fan runs all the time. If you do not feel or hear, the fan is not working. The one on the compressor, take the cover off the back and you can see if the fan is turning. It runs all the time also.

I have GSS25SGP SS with no condenser fan operation. Components very hot, but unit is still cooling. Is this fan shut down a part of the defrost cycle or a fan motor failure? aerolog2

The fan has to run when the compressor is running. Usually does not run during defrost cycle. Could be bad fan motor, or the fan has lost power.

Secondary fan on impala SS 1996 not operating. fan motor works, new sending unit, new relay installed What else could keep it from coming on?

The PCM controls these fans via certain sensor inputs, ( CTS ) and switches ( A/C compressor for instance ). When relays are removed, both relays sockets should show 12v constant ( battery voltage on "switch side" ). When the key is rolled on, there should be 12v appear in two more places, ("Coil side" ) the relays are then operated by a ground signal from the PCM. ( Powertrain Control Module ) You need a scan-tool to check for fan request, by the PCM. A/C compressor request, etc. If you have any DTC's then repairing them may well fix your problem, otherwise, you may have a faulty PCM.
